A clamor of booze-sodden, spring-break archetypes bellies up to Frank's Bar in this interactive theater experience, playing out uproarious scenes recognizable to any barfly or beachgoer. Between slurred bits of sketch comedy, the actors invite the audience to participate in drinking games akin to Never Have I Ever and Explain Where Your Shirt Went. The quick-witted cast is culled from this troupe and others, including Brave New Workshop Theater, Stevie Ray's Comedy Cabaret, and the Fringe Festival. The Twin Cities Daily Planet's Becca Mitchell praised the half-play-half-party for doing “a great job of … reveling in the familiarity of certain drunken scenarios.” The performance is likely to inspire a powerful thirst in the audience, easily managed by the fully stocked bar.
Actors Theater of Minnesota
Although it’s known for comedies such as the two-man, 24-character A Tuna Christmas, Actors Theater of Minnesota also places a significant emphasis on education and corporate training. At The Creative Institute, the ensemble trains students how to work theatrical media such as improv and writing into their everyday problem-solving skills.
